In July of 2011, the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Committee on Infractions found the Georgia Institute of Technology men's basketball and football programs have committed violations of NCAA regulations. The Institute was cited for a lack of cooperation during the investigation, a failure to meet the conditions and obligations of membership and preferential treatment violations. There were additional violations in the men's basketball program related to rules stemming from a nonscholastic basketball tournament conducted on the Institute's campus, which the public report further details. "Georgia Tech is committed to the integrity of its athletics program, including full cooperation and support of the NCAA," said Georgia Tech President G.P. "Bud" Peterson. "Given the information we had at the time, I believe we took reasonable and appropriate steps to determine the proper course of action and acted in good faith. Looking back, there are things we could have done differently. Because of our unwavering commitment to NCAA compliance, we have already taken a number of steps to address perceived shortcomings, hopefully ensuring that our programs remain beyond reproach." After being notified of the allegations in November 2009, Georgia Tech conducted its own internal investigation, forming a committee made up of faculty, staff and external counsel that made recommendations based on available information and the internal investigation findings. As a result of this exhaustive review process and because of Georgia Tech's steadfast commitment to compliance, the Institute completely revamped and enhanced its athletic compliance operation and staffing. Changes include a greater investment in experienced staff, training and awareness among staff and student athletes. Penalties include:  Public reprimand and censure.  Four years of probation from July 14, 2011, through July 13, 2015. The report further details this probation.  A $100,000 financial penalty.  A reduction of two men's basketball recruiting days during the 2011 summer evaluation period (self-imposed by the Institute).  A limit to 10 official visits for men's basketball for the 2011-12 and 2012-2013 academic years.  A vacation of all contests won by the football team during the 2009 season after November 24, which is when the university was alerted to the potential eligibility issues.

BOBBY DODD STADIUM at HISTORIC GRANT FIELD

Georgia Tech’s storied football facility has been a cornerstone of college football for 100 years. Cozily nestled amid Atlanta’s skyscrapers, Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field is easily one of the nation’s most unique settings for college football. Originally built in 1913 by members of the Georgia Tech student body, Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field is the oldest on-campus stadium in NCAA Division I-A (FBS). This fall, Georgia Tech celebrates the 100th anniversary of Grant Field. Georgia Tech’s football facility was known as Grant Field until April of 1988, when the Georgia State Board of Regents voted to add the name Bobby Dodd Stadium in honor of the legendary coach who guided the Rambling Wreck to its most illustrious football era. A member of the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame, Dodd compiled a 165-64-8 record from 1945-66, and tutored 21

All-Americans as he led Tech to 13 bowl trips during his 22year stay as head coach. Dodd served as Tech’s director of athletics from 1951-76 and then worked as a consultant for the alumni association until his death in 1988 for a 57-year association with the Institute. The name change was the first for the facility since it was named Hugh Inman Grant Field in 1914 after a gift from John W. Grant, a member of the Tech Board of Trustees and a well-known Atlanta merchant. The Grant family did not give the land on which Grant Field is built. However, they did give the initial $15,000 used in 1913 to build the first permanent concrete stands on the west side of the field. In gratitude for the gift, the Board of Trustees named the field Hugh Inman Grant Field in memory of Grant’s deceased son. The students who built Grant Field more than 100 years ago wouldn’t recognize the home of Georgia Tech football if they saw it now. Not only has the skyline around the stadium changed dramatically, but the facility has steadily grown and improved during its rich history. Tech actually began playing football on this site in 1905, but in 1913, the original concrete West Stands were largely built by Tech students and seated 5,600. The concrete East Stands were completed in time for the 1924 season. A year later, the South Stands were finished, bringing the seating capacity to approximately 30,000. In 1947, the West Stands were rebuilt, which raised the capacity to 40,000, and a new press box was added. The North Stands were erected in 1958 to bring the seating to 44,105. A second deck was added to the East side in 1962, increasing capacity to 53,300. The facility was expanded again in 1967, when the West Stands were double-decked to bring capacity to 58,121. That project also included new press and photo levels, including an elevator. Following the 1985 season, the historic South Stands, which formed the familiar U-shape on North Avenue, were razed. In their place is the William C. Wardlaw Center, a multi-purpose facility for Georgia Tech’s athletic and academic departments that was opened in 1988. Seating capacity was reduced to 46,000. A major renovation was completed prior to the 1992 season with the construction of the Bill Moore Student Success Center behind the West Stands, as well as the addition of 32 executive suites, the renovation of the President’s Box and press level and the addition of the Roy Richards Festival concourse area under the West Stands. Natural grass returned to Grant Field in 1995 after 24 seasons with artificial turf. The field was originally surfaced with Astroturf in 1971 and resurfaced in 1979, and then new artificial All-Pro Turf was installed in 1988.

The venerable stadium added another chapter to its storied history with a new look and an expanded capacity in 2003 when a two-year expansion and renovation raised capacity to 55,000 seats and added numerous amenities. The $75 million endeavor included the expansion and renovation of Bobby Dodd Stadium/Grant Field and the rebuilt Russ Chandler Stadium, Tech’s 4,157-seat baseball facility. The focal point of the project was the north end zone structure, which seats 15,678 in two levels and also includes 10 luxury suites and the Howard Ector Letterwinners Lounge. The complex also features the 7,000-square foot Kim King Football Locker Room, a 3,300-square foot players’ lounge, the Jones Media Room, and coaches’ offices that overlook Grant Field. In addition to the rebuilt seating area, the lower east structure features 20 executive suites as well as 2,040 chair-backed club seats between the 25-yard lines and a private air-conditioned lounge for those patrons. At the south end of Bobby Dodd Stadium, 2,970 seats were added in front of the Wardlaw Building, providing seating in the south end zone for the first time since 1985. The south end zone seating and the lower levels of the east and north stands form a three-sided bowl. Construction began following the 2001 season, with the first phase completed for the 2002 season, when capacity was 43,719. The first phase saw the completion of the lower bowl seating in the south, east and north areas of the stadium.

A new natural grass playing surface and drainage system was installed, and the field was shifted approximately 30 feet to the north and 15 feet to the west. Program management was provided by Carter/Turner, a joint venture of Carter & Associates and Turner Construction, while HOK Sport was the project’s architect. Bobby Dodd Stadium/Grant Field is located at the heart of the Georgia Tech campus on Techwood Drive, bordered by North Avenue on the south and Bobby Dodd Way on the north. Tech has hosted numerous crowds which have exceeded capacity, the largest of which was the 60,316 spectators for the Georgia game in 1973. Georgia Tech continues to make improvements to the facility on a yearly basis. A new, larger video board and ribbon boards were installed just in time for the start of the 2009 season. Renovations were also done in 2009 on the Festival level of the west side and throughout the stadium. In the 100 autumns since Grant Field was erected, legends from Clint Castleberry to George Morris to Joe Hamilton to Calvin Johnson have played here, and Paul Johnson joins coaching giants such as John Heisman and Bobby Dodd in patrolling the Grant Field sideline. Four national title teams and 15 conference champions have showcased their skills on the Flats, and Grant Field was the site of one of the most famous games ever played, Tech’s 222-0 win over Cumberland in 1916. Today’s Bobby Dodd Stadium seats 55,000 fans in a modern, comfortable facility that embraces the tradition that has made Tech’s venerable stadium a cornerstone of college football for a century.

Deeper Yellow Jackets, With 15 Starters Returning, Take Momentum Into 2013 Georgia Tech, which returns 15 starters and 54 letterwinners from a team that closed the 2012 season with an appearance in the ACC Championship Game and a postseason bowl victory, looks for even bigger success in 2013. The Yellow Jackets overcame a 2-4 start to finish 7-7 overall and 5-3 in the ACC last season. Tech defeated USC, the preseason No. 1-ranked team, 21-7 in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. The win over the Trojans, combined with the addition of new defensive coordinator Ted Roof and many pieces of Tech’s high-octane offense returning, has created an optimistic atmosphere on the Flats. “We’re excited,” sixth-year head coach Paul Johnson said. “I think we accomplished some things in the spring and the players have worked hard, so we’re anxious to get started.” There are additional reasons for the excitement surrounding the Yellow Jackets:  Leadership -- While still a relatively young team, Georgia Tech has 18 seniors, including 11 who started last season.  Experience -- All combined, Georgia Tech’s returning players have combined for 361 career starts. Only three teams in college football have more combined starts.  Depth -- The Yellow Jackets are deeper on the offensive line, at B-back and in the defensive secondary than they have been in years.  Consistency -- As has been proven over the years, one thing you can count on is that Paul Johnson’s offense will rack up the yardage -- Tech has finished in the top five nationally in rushing offense each of the past five seasons -- and the points.There is little reason to think that will change in 2013. Conversely, like most teams, the Yellow Jackets have plenty of concerns this fall. There’s a challenging schedule. Ten of Tech’s 12 opponents won at least six games last season. The Yellow Jackets must play ACC Coastal Division rivals North Carolina and Virginia Tech over a five-day span in September. Tech has back-to-back road games at Miami and BYU in early October, and it closes the season with traditional rival Georgia, which won the SEC East last year.

2013 OUTLOOK With the departure of Tevin Washington, Tech will have a new starting quarterback, most likely athletic sophomore Vad Lee, although redshirt freshman Justin Thomas is expected to be a key part of the offense as well. Tech is thin at wide receiver, where junior Darren Waller is the only healthy returner with a career reception. A nonfootball injury to sophomore Anthony Autry in the spring means a rookie or two will need to step up. While the defense made great strides the second half of 2012, they’re still learning a new scheme under Roof. Tech’s defense struggled at times last season getting off the field and had a difficult time creating third-and-long situations. “Clearly, we need to get off to a better start (this season),” Johnson said. “Four of our first five games are against division opponents, so we’ll know where we stand in early October.” What’s New Since the win over USC in El Paso on New Year’s Eve, there’s been changes on and off the field. The first step was the hiring of Roof, who was an all-star linebacker during his playing days at Georgia Tech. Well-respected nationally as a defensive coach and top-notch recruiter, Roof was an ideal selection to replace Al Groh as defensive coordinator. Assistant coach Charles Kelly’s departure for a similar job at Florida State opened the door to hire former Auburn assistant Mike Pelton as defensive line coach. The hiring of Pelton allowed Andy McCollum to switch from D-line to linebackers, and for Joe Speed to move from linebackers to the secondary. Assistant coach Dave Walkosky will again focus solely on special teams. After Groh was let go in mid-season last year, Walkosky also took on the duties of coaching the defensive line. Quarterbacks and B-backs coach Brian Bohannon also departed after being offered the job as head coach for Kennesaw State’s fledgling program. Bohannon took with him director of player personnel Liam Klein. Tech then beefed up its recruiting efforts by replacing Klein with director of player personnel Matt Griffin, but also by hiring two assistants -- Mike Cassano and former Yellow Jacket Saeed Khalif. Khalif is one of three former Georgia Tech players who

>>> HISTORY

Since Paul Johnson’s arrival in 2008, Georgia Tech has consistently put up gaudy numbers. Last year the Yellow Jackets ranked fourth nationally in rushing offense, and they ranked in the top one-third of the ACC in scoring offense and total offense. The names change, but the results haven’t. Gone is quarterback Tevin Washington, who started every game the last two seasons and broke an ACC record for rushing touchdowns. While Washington’s experience and knowledge of the offense will be missed, Tech will be quicker and more athletic at quarterback regardless of who is under center. The leading candidate is sophomore Vad Lee, who played a big chunk of the snaps the second half of last season. Lee, who has shown great leadership ability as a young player, rushed for nine touchdowns and threw for four more. Redshirt freshman Justin Thomas, lightning-quick and dangerous in the option game, is expected to play even if he doesn’t win the starting job. Sophomore Tim Byerly enters the fall third on the depth chart. While no B-back has rushed for 1,000 yards since Anthony Allen in 2010, senior David Sims and junior Zach Laskey have proved to be a solid one-two punch. Last year the duo combined to rush for more than 1,300 yards. Sims’ five highest career rushing outputs came in the final five games of the 2012 season. Junior Matt Connors, a hard-nosed non-scholarship player, and sophomore Broderick Snoddy, arguably the fastest player on the roster, give the Yellow Jackets good depth at B-back. Gone at A-back is Orwin Smith, Tech’s best rush-receive combo player the last two years. However, the A-back position is fully stocked. Leading the way is senior Robert Godhigh, the 5-7 former walk-on who averaged 7.9 yards per carry and 15.1

The Yellow Jackets aren’t complete strangers to the 4-3 that Roof often employs -- Tech played a similar scheme much of the second half of last season when it won five of its final eight games. Roof’s scheme seems to be a good fit. Senior Jeremiah Attaochu’s move from outside linebacker to defensive end should allow him to do what he does best -- rush the passer. Attaochu, who has 19 career sacks, should bolster a pass rush that was deficient at times last season. A pair of seniors -- returning starter Emmanuel Dieke and Chris Crenshaw -- are competing for the starting job at the other end position. Juniors Anthony Williams and Nick Menocal, and redshirt freshmen Roderick Rook-Chungong and Tyler Stargel will also challenge at end. Australian sophomore Adam Gotsis is the frontrunner at nose tackle. Gotsis, who has great potential, was impressive last season as a true freshman reserve. Junior Shawn Green, who would have competed for a starting job, will likely begin the season on the injured list. Sophomore Jimmie Kitchen will be Gotsis’ top competitor. The other tackle position may belong to senior Euclid Cummings, who is coming off an outstanding spring. Redshirt freshman Patrick Gamble is an athletic rookie who should contribute immediately. Redshirt freshman Francis Kallon could also see time at tackle. At linebacker, Tech is faster and more athletic. Sophomore Jabari Hunt-Days, the returning starter, and senior Daniel Drummond, also with starting experience, combine with sophomore Anthony Harrell to give Tech solid depth at middle linebacker. Hunt-Days is a rising star. Drummond is a hard-nosed veteran, while Harrell is one of the team’s hardest hitters. The top two candidates at outside linebacker -- junior Quayshawn Nealy and senior Brandon Watts -- are both returning starters and both have all-star potential. Junior Tremayne McNair, sophomore Tyler Marcordes and redshirt freshman Beau Hankins enter fall drills as the top back-ups at outside linebacker. The secondary, which includes a number of All-ACC candidates, should be one of Tech’s strengths in 2013. Perhaps the leader of the bunch is cornerback Jemea Thomas, a versatile senior who can play any position in the secondary. Thomas has seven career interceptions, including a nifty one-handed pick of Florida State’s E.J. Manuel in the 2012 ACC Championship Game. Senior Louis Young, who has 21 career starts to his credit, anchors the other corner. Sophomores Domonique Noble and D.J. White are two very capable back-ups. Senior Isaiah Johnson, who owns 29 career starts, is expected to start at safety. Johnson suffered an injury in December that caused him to miss the bowl game and all of spring practice, but he is expected to be at 100 percent this fall. As many as six other players could compete for a starting job, giving Tech great depth at safety. Sophomore Chris Milton, who may have been Tech’s top special teams performer last season, enters the fall atop the depth chart. Sophomore Demond Smith, junior Jamal Golden, junior Coray Carlson and impressive redshirt freshman Lynn Griffin are close behind. The intriguing figure at safety is junior Fred Holton, who hasn’t played a snap since 2010. Holton, who tore his

are new to the Yellow Jacket football staff. Johnson also welcomed back Joe Hamilton, the former Yellow Jacket All-American quarterback and 1999 Heisman Trophy runner-up. Recent Tech linebacker Steven Sylvester was hired as a graduate assistant. “It’s great to have former Georgia Tech players back in the program,” Johnson said. “They care deeply about this place and this program.” Construction in the football wing created new offices for Tech’s expanded staff. An NFL locker room, which will be used by current NFL players during their off-season, was also constructed. Just after spring practice began, Cal Poly’s Bryan Cook was hired to coach the quarterbacks and B-backs. Cook, a former Georgia Tech assistant coach, ran an offense very similar to Tech’s last year at Cal Poly.

yards per reception last season. Godhigh may also be Tech’s best-blocking A-back. Junior B.J. Bostic enters the fall ranked first on the depth chart at the other A-back position. Bostic is quick and has a nose for finding the first-down marker. Four other juniors -- former quarterback Synjyn Days, speedy Tony Zenon, who missed spring practice with an injury, Deon Hill and Charles Perkins should all see considerable action. Redshirt freshman Dennis Andrews was impressive in the spring and could be on the verge of a breakout season. The wide receiver positions may be Tech’s biggest question mark. Sophomore Anthony Autry, who was impressive the first half of 2012 as a true freshman, missed the second half of the season with a knee injury. He re-injured that knee in the spring on the way to class. The only returning receiver with a career reception is junior Darren Waller, who started 10 games last season and has outstanding potential. Waller caught just eight passes last season, but averaged more than 20 yards per reception. Junior Corey Dennis, a former defensive back, enters the fall as the starter at the other wide receiver. He will get plenty of competition from a pair of redshirt freshmen -Micheal Summers and Travin Henry. One or more true freshmen could contribute right away and Tech is hoping to get contributions from DeAndre Smelter, who will try his hand at football after three seasons on the Yellow Jacket baseball team. The offensive line has a chance to be deep with a little help on the injury front. Senior center Jay Finch missed all of spring practice after undergoing off-season surgery. Finch, who is on the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, would be a big boost to the line if he can re-gain his strength in time. Redshirt freshman Freddie Burden, who was competing for the top back-up job, suffered an injury in the spring that will likely keep him sidelined all season. Junior Catlin Alford and redshirt freshman Michael Muns got all the snaps in the spring after Burden’s injury. At guard, Tech is in good hands. Senior Will Jackson, an Academic All-ACC selection and a May graduate, has started 29 times. Junior Shaq Mason, a returning starter, has made an impact since stepping on campus in 2011. Three sophomores -- Trey Braun, Errin Joe and Auburn transfer Thomas O’Reilly -- are the top reserves at guard. Returning at left tackle is Ray Beno, who also graduated from Tech in May after earning Academic All-ACC honors. Junior Morgan Bailey, who has great potential but has battled nagging injuries the last two years, enters the fall as the

44

starter at right tackle. Sophomore Bryan Chamberlain and redshirt freshman Chase Roberts should both see considerable action at tackle. Special Teams Tech’s special teams made improvements last season under first-year special teams coordinator Dave Walkosky, ranking in the top 25 nationally in kick returns, punt returns and punt return defense. There remains plenty of room for improvement, in particular on kickoff return defense and net punting. Junior Jamal Golden was a star on special teams last year. He was the only player in the nation to rank in the top 10 nationally in both kickoff returns (28.3 ypa) and punt returns (14.6 ypa). Golden returned two kickoffs for touchdowns -- one each against BYU and North Carolina. Previously, Tech had not returned a kick for a touchdown since 1998. Both punters return. Senior Sean Poole was the starter last season until separating his shoulder trying to make a tackle against Miami. Sophomore Ryan Rodwell, who took over in Poole’s absence, had nearly identical numbers. The interesting competition to watch early this fall will be at kicker, where senior David Scully and true freshman Harrison Butker will battle. Scully made 38-of-40 PATs, 4-of-9 field goals and handled the majority of kickoffs last season. Gone is veteran long snapper Tyler Morgan, but scholarship sophomore Sean Tobin, who redshirted last season, is more than capable. The Schedule Two words describe Georgia Tech’s 2013 schedule -challenging and unique. The Yellow Jackets will play in ESPN Thursday Night games twice -- vs. Virginia Tech and at Clemson. Coupled with two open dates, that means there are four Saturdays this fall in which Georgia Tech will be idle. “The two Thursday night games give us an opportunity for great exposure against two really good opponents,” Johnson said. The Jackets’ Thursday night game against Virginia Tech comes just five days after hosting another ACC Coastal Division rival, North Carolina. In October, Tech plays consecutive Saturdays on the road at Miami -- where the Yellow Jackets have not won since 2007 -- and BYU. The good news is that Tech plays just two road games after October 12th, including just one longer than driving distance.

All-ACC Streak Georgia Tech has placed at least one player on the AllACC first team (media) in each of the last 17 seasons. Equally impressive, the Jackets have had at least one offensive lineman on the All-ACC first team (media) for five consecutive seasons. In Search Of 25k Since Georgia Tech began playing football in 1892, the Yellow Jackets have scored 24,553 combined points. Can Tech reach 25,000 before the end of the 2013 season? It’s possible. Last year the Jackets scored 470 points in 14 games -- an average of 33.6 points per game.

Historic Grant Field: 100th Anniversary Georgia Tech is planning a season-long celebration of Historic Grant Field’s 100th anniversary. To mark the anniversary, a special logo (right) was created. The highlight of the celebration will come Sept. 26 when the Yellow Jackets host Virginia Tech in an ESPN Thursday night game. Tech will wear throw-back uniforms and every player who ever earned All-American status has been invited back to campus.

Coastal Living Since the ACC began divisional play in 2005, Georgia Tech has won the second-most conference games in that span. Tech has averaged five ACC wins over this eight-year span and claimed the Coastal Division title three times.

>>> 2013 PREVIEW

Preseason Hoopla Georgia Tech was picked to finish third in the ACC Coastal Division by both The Sporting News and Athlon. Athlon ranks the Yellow Jackets 34th nationally. Phil Steele’s magazine tabbed senior defensive end Jeremiah Attaochu preseason first team All-ACC, and the publication put junior kick and punt return specialist Jamal Golden on its third (and fourth) team preseason All-American team. Athlon put Tech Jr. LB Quayshawn Nealy on its preseason All-ACC first team. Sporting News named Attaochu the ACC’s Biggest Pass Rusher. Sporting News also named Tech head coach Paul Johnson the ACC’s Best Game-Day Coach. “Few coaches understand the ins and outs of their system better than Johnson,” the TSN reported.

YELLOW JACKET NOTEBOOK

Four-Down Territory Over the last five seasons, the Yellow Jackets have played eight games when they did not punt or punted just one time. Why so few punts? The ability of Tech’s offense to sustain long drives is a big reason. But also, the Yellow Jackets have been know to go for it on fourth down quite often. Last season, only two teams in college football attempted more fourth-down conversions than Georgia Tech, which was 23-of-37 on fourth down, including 4-of-4 vs. Florida State in the ACC Championship. Only 12 teams in college football went for it on fourth down 30 times or more last season.

YELLOW JACKET NOTEBOOK Ted Roof Back At Old Stomping Grounds Ted Roof, defensive coordinator at Penn State in 2012 and at Auburn when the Tigers won a BCS national championship following the 2010 season, returned to Georgia Tech in January to serve as defensive coordinator for his alma mater. Roof has strong ties to Tech. He was a four-year letterwinner as a linebacker under head coach Bill Curry from 1982- 85 and is in the Georgia Tech Athletics Hall of Fame. He returned to the Flats in 1998 to serve as linebackers coach under head coach George O’Leary. He was promoted to defensive coordinator in 1999 and held that position for three years. The Yellow Jackets shared an ACC title in ‘98 and played in a bowl game all four years during Roof’s tenure. Last season, Roof served as defensive coordinator under another former Georgia Tech assistant coach, Bill O’Brien. The Nittany Lions exceeded all expectations by posting an 84 record. Roof’s defense ranked second in the Big Ten Conference in scoring defense (19.1 ppg), first in sacks (34), first in red-zone defense and third in turnover margin. The Name Game If you hear a television or radio announcer sounding a little tongue-tied during a Georgia Tech broadcast this fall, give them a little slack. Georgia Tech’s roster includes four players who share Griffin for a last name: Corey, Chris, Lynn and Ty. All four Griffins -- no relation -- are freshmen (Lynn is a redshirt freshman). Corey and Lynn are both defensive backs. There are also three Alfords on the roster -- Catlin, Chase and Corey. Chase, a true freshman, and Corey, a senior, are brothers. The 2013 roster also includes two Allens (Marcus and Zach), two Smiths (Demond and Will), two Thomas’ (Jemea and Justin), and two Williams’ (Anthony and Mitchell).

Tech Adds To Strong Bowl Tradition • With its 16th consecutive bowl appearance in 2012, Georgia Tech is tied for the fourth-longest active streak. The Jackets trail only Florida State (31), Florida (22) and Virginia Tech (20). • Tech made its 41st bowl appearance overall this past season, tying for the 12th-most nationally. • With a record of 23-18, Tech has the ninth-highest bowl winning percentage nationally and the 10th-most bowl wins. • Georgia Tech was the first school to win each of the four traditional major bowls -- the Rose, Orange, Sugar and Cotton. It completed that feat in 1955. • Following the 2009 season, Tech played in a BCS bowl game -- the Orange Bowl -- against Iowa. • Tech’s first bowl game was the 1929 Rose Bowl -- the famous “Wrong Way Riegels” game against California. Ball Hogs Over the last 40 years, Georgia Tech has produced a time of possession of 39:56 or longer six times. Two – vs. Georgia and against Boston College – came in 2012.

Yellow Jacket Notebook • Yellow Jacket running back Charles Perkins got married this past spring. His best man was senior teammate Jeremiah Attaochu. • Tech redshirt freshman Zach Allen can speak Portugese. • Several Yellow Jacket players had significant internships this summer including senior punter Sean Poole, who interned for a lobbying firm in Washington, D.C. • Georgia Tech graduate assistant coach Zac Etheridge was a four-year starter who broke his neck in the first quarter of an ‘09 game against Ole Miss. Nine months later, after extensive rehabilitation, Etheridge returned to the starting lineup for Auburn’s memorable run to the national title in 2010. Locks Of Love Over the last year, three Yellow Jacket players -- Corey Alford, Coray Carlson and David Scully -- have donated their lengthy hair to Locks of Love. Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. 2012: Corey Alford

JOHNSON HEAD COACH 6th Season at Tech (40-26) 17th season overall (147-65) Western Carolina (1979) @gtpauljohnson Paul Johnson, who has led Georgia Tech to five bowl games and two ACC Championship Game appearances while breaking records with his spread option offense, enters his sixth year with the Yellow Jackets and his 17th year overall as a head coach. The only person ever named ACC Coach of the Year in his first two seasons in the league, Johnson has compiled a record of 40-26 in five seasons on the Flats. Johnson won more games in his first five seasons than any coach in Georgia Tech history. Over the last five seasons combined, only Virginia Tech has won more ACC games than Johnson’s Yellow Jackets. In 15 years overall as a head coach, with previous stops at Georgia Southern and Navy, Johnson owns a career record of 147-65. Only 13 active FBS coaches have won more games and only 12 have won at a higher percentage. The mastermind behind Georgia Tech’s high-octane spread option offense, Johnson’s teams have ranked in the top four nationally in rushing offense each of the last five seasons. Since 2008, Georgia Tech has rushed for more yards than any team in college football. Over the past five seasons combined, the Yellow Jackets have rushed for more than 20,000 yards -- or the equivalent of 11.4 miles. What Johnson has accomplished at Georgia Tech has been remarkable:  In his first two seasons at Tech, Johnson was named the ACC Coach of the Year.  In 2008, he was named National Coach of the Year by CBS Sports.  In 2009, the Jackets played in the ACC title game against Clemson (Tech won the game, but later vacated).  Tech played in a BCS bowl game for the first time in 2009.  Tech has averaged 8.0 wins per season under Johnson.  Tech led the nation in rushing in 2010 and finished second in 2011.

 In 39 of Johnson’s 66 games at Georgia Tech, the Yellow Jackets produced more than 400 yards of total offense.  Under Johnson, Tech produced four 1,000-yard rushers -- Jonathan Dwyer in 2008, Dwyer and Joshua Nesbitt in 2009, and Anthony Allen in 2010.  Over the last five years combined, the Yellow Jackets have produced 14 first team All-ACC selections.  Tech has produced two first team All-Americans under Johnson -- Michael Johnson in 2008 and Derrick Morgan in 2009.  Since Johnson’s arrival, a Tech player has been named ACC Offensive Player of the Year (Dwyer in 2008) and ACC Defensive Player of the Year (Morgan in 2009).  Johnson is 12-5 at Tech in games decided by five points or less.  Tech has scored more than 30 points in a game 31 times under Johnson and has a 28-3 record in those contests.  In 2009, Tech won in Tallahassee (Fla.) for the first time in school history, beat a top-five ranked team at home (Virginia Tech) for the first time since 1962, won on the road in Charlottesville (Va.) for the first time since 1990 and earned its highest national ranking (7th) since 1999.  In Johnson’s five seasons, Tech has scored 15 nonoffensive touchdowns (three each season).  Johnson is 6-2 in home games against top-25 opponents.  Under Johnson, Tech’s Academic Progress Report (APR) scores have risen each of the last four years. Last season Georgia Tech struggled to a 2-4 start, which included a pair of heart-breaking overtime losses to ACC Coastal Division rivals Virginia Tech and Miami. But the Yellow Jackets turned it around the second half of the season, erupting for 68 points at North Carolina en route to winning four straight conference games. By the time the dust cleared in late November, Tech was crowned Coastal Division champion and played in the ACC Championship Game. Statistically, the Yellow Jackets produced more yards of total offense and rushed for more yards than any team in school history, and averaged a school-record 40.0 points per game in conference play. The 7-7 season culminated with an upset with over Southern California, 21-7, in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. In 2011, Georgia Tech exceeded all expectations. After being picked to finish fourth in the ACC Coastal Division, the Yellow Jackets went 8-5, 5-3 in the ACC, and played in a bowl game for the 15th consecutive season.

With just 10 scholarship seniors on the roster, Tech bolted to a 6-0 start, setting school, ACC and NCAA records for offense along the way, and rising to as high as 13th in the national polls. In October, the Jackets handed sixth-ranked and eventual ACC champion Clemson a 31-17 loss in Bobby Dodd Stadium, a win that eventually helped Tech earn a bid to the Hyundai Sun Bowl. In 2010, the Yellow Jackets -- who lost four juniors to the 2010 NFL Draft and played the final four games without injured quarterback Joshua Nesbitt -- finished 4-4 in the ACC and led the nation in rushing offense for the first time in school history. Two Yellow Jackets -- senior center Sean Bedford and senior running back Anthony Allen -- were named first team All-ACC in 2010. The 2009 season was one of the most memorable in Yellow Jacket history despite fielding one of the youngest rosters in college football (just six scholarship seniors). After a mid-September loss at nationally-ranked Miami when the Yellow Jackets played their third game in a 12-day span, Tech reeled off eight consecutive victories including a 5-0 record in October when it played four road games. A convincing 49-10 win at Duke on Nov. 14 clinched the ACC Coastal Division crown, then Tech defeated Clemson for a second time, this time in the ACC Championship Game in Tampa, Fla. That game was later vacated due to NCAA sanctions. Tech, which reached a national ranking as high as seventh, played in the FedEx Orange Bowl, its first appearance in a major bowl game since 1962. Along the way, the Yellow Jackets rolled up mind-boggling numbers on offense, ranking second nationally in rushing offense (295.4 ypg) and third in time of possession (33:49). Prior to the start of the 2008 season, Sports Illustrated projected Georgia Tech to finish 3-9 and the ACC media picked the Yellow Jackets to finish fourth in the Coastal Division. However, Johnson directed Tech to a 9-4 record, a share of the Coastal Division title and a Chick-fil-A Bowl berth. Johnson’s first Yellow Jacket team beat three nationally-ranked opponents – Florida State, Miami and Georgia – over the final four games of the regular season. The win over Georgia snapped a seven-game losing streak to Tech’s in-state rival. Johnson’s first season at Georgia Tech was remarkable for a number of reasons. Not only did he and his staff install completely new offensive and defensive schemes, but Johnson inherited one of the nation’s youngest rosters,

which included 76 freshmen and sophomores. The last onethird of the season, 16 of Tech’s 22 starters were freshmen or sophomores. He also took over a program low in scholarship numbers, well below the maximum of 85, the lingering effects of distant NCAA penalties. The 2008 team also suffered more than its share of injuries. Twelve opening-day starters combined to miss 31 games because of injuries. In a September road game at defending ACC champion Virginia Tech, the Jackets started a walk-on freshman at wide receiver. A few weeks later, Tech started its third-string quarterback as the result of injuries to starter Joshua Nesbitt and back-up Jaybo Shaw. Almost as soon as Johnson was hired, the pundits questioned if Johnson’s option-based spread offense would work on the BCS level. Those questions came even though Navy had racked up mind-numbing offensive numbers, leading the NCAA in rushing three straight years from 2005 to 2007, mostly against ACC and other BCS-level competition. Johnson quieted those critics almost as soon as the 2008 season kicked off and certainly after Tech closed the regular season by combining for 86 points and 881 rushing yards in games against nationally-ranked Miami and Georgia. The Yellow Jackets, with freshmen and sophomores manning every skill position and behind a patch-work offensive line, averaged 273.2 rushing yards per game, ranking fourth nationally and first in the ACC. Georgia Tech also led the ACC in total offense (372.5 ypg). Johnson enjoyed success as the head coach at Georgia Southern (1997-2001) and Navy (2002-2007) before being named Georgia Tech’s 12th head coach on Dec. 12, 2007. Johnson coached six years at Navy, where in 2007 the Midshipmen won a fifth straight Commander-In-Chief's Trophy, earned a postseason bowl bid for the fifth consecutive year and beat Notre Dame for the first time since 1963. Johnson was a finalist for the 2007 Liberty Mutual National Coach of the Year. In six seasons at Navy, Johnson compiled a record of 4529. Johnson took over a Navy program that was coming off the worst two-year span in its 123-year history (1-20) and had recorded just two winning seasons in the last 20 years. After a 2-10 mark in Johnson's first year, the Midshipmen achieved what many thought was no longer possible at an Academy. Johnson brought the Midshipmen back into the

national spotlight with a 43-19 (.694) record over his last four-plus years. Johnson dominated the other two Service Academies like no other coach in the school's annals, posting an 11-1 (.917) overall record, including a perfect 6-0 mark against rival Army. His 2007 senior class was the first in school history to post a perfect 8-0 mark against Army and Air Force. Johnson's Navy teams improved as each season progressed. Over his last five years, Navy posted a 13-2 (.867) record over the final three games of the season and outscored the opposition 611-335 in those contests. In games in which Johnson had more than a week to prepare for an opponent, the Midshipmen went 15-6 (.714) over his last four years combined. The Midshipmen led the nation in rushing in 2007 for an unprecedented third consecutive year, producing more than 350 yards per game. Under Johnson, Navy never finished lower than third nationally in rushing offense. Navy ranked among the nation's highest-scoring teams in 2007, averaging 39.92 points per outing. The 2007 Mids also ranked in the top 10 nationally in kickoff returns and in fewest sacks allowed. Navy ranked No. 1 in the country in graduation rates during Johnson’s tenure. In 2004, Johnson was named Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year after leading Navy to a 10-2 record, tying the school record for wins set in 1905, and won a bowl game (34-19 victory vs. New Mexico in the Emerald Bowl) for just the fifth time in the history of the program. In 2003, Johnson led Navy to an 8-5 record and brought the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy back to Annapolis for the first time since 1981, propelling Navy to a bowl game for the first time since 1996. The Mids became just the sixth team in NCAA history to go from a winless season to a bowl game in two years or less. Before arriving at Annapolis, Johnson served as head coach at Georgia Southern from 1997 to 2001. At Georgia Southern, Johnson posted a 62-10 (.861) record, won two straight I-AA National Championships (1999 and 2000), five consecutive Southern Conference Championships and was named the Division I-AA National Coach of the Year four straight years (1997-2000). After Johnson took over as head coach at Georgia Southern in 1997, he returned the Eagle program to national

coaches in the country by The Sporting News. After first arriving at Georgia Southern in 1983 as defensive line coach, Johnson was promoted to offensive coordinator in 1985. Under his tutelage, record-setting quarterback Tracy Ham and the Eagle offense re-wrote the school record book while averaging 435 total yards and 36 points per contest. Georgia Southern rolled to a combined 26-4 record and captured a pair of I-AA titles in 1985-86. Johnson's coaching career began when he was offensive coordinator and line coach at his alma mater, Avery County (N.C.) High School, in 1979-80. He accepted the offensive coordinator's position at Lees-McRae Junior College in 1981, leading his offensive unit to a sixth-place national standing among NJCAA total offense leaders. Johnson, a native of Newland, N.C., earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from Western Carolina in 1979 and a Master's degree in health and physical education from Appalachian State in 1982. He and wife, Susan, are the parents of a daughter, Kaitlyn.

Johnson was previously Navy's offensive coordinator in 1995 and 1996, and his spread offense made an immediate impact, breaking five school records during the Mids' fivewin season in 1995. Navy posted a 9-3 record the next season in 1996, including a 42-38 victory over California in the Aloha Bowl. It was Navy's first winning season since 1982 and one of only two winning seasons the Mids had during a 19-year span. Prior to joining the Navy staff, Johnson spent eight seasons as the offensive coordinator at the University of Hawai'i (1987-94). He helped guide the Rainbows to their first Western Athletic Conference title and their first bowl appearance, coordinating an explosive offense that broke or equaled more than 160 school records. While at Hawai'i, Johnson developed a successful offensive unit which earned top-20 I-A statistical rankings in scoring offense, total offense and rushing offense during six of his eight seasons. He earned top offensive coach honors in the WAC and was named one of the top 10 assistant

prominence statistically and in the won-lost ledger. In addition to Georgia Southern's 62-10 mark, the Eagles scored 2,855 points (39.7 points per game), picked up 25,941 rushing yards (360.3 yards per game), 7,816 passing yards (108.6 yards per game) and 33,757 total yards (468.8 yards per game). GSU scored 380 touchdowns in the Johnson era, an average of 5.3 per game. The Eagles' scoring margin under Johnson was +21.5 (39.7-18.5). Johnson picked up a milestone victory in the 2000 I-AA National Championship Game against Montana. Not only did the 27-25 victory give Georgia Southern its second straight national title, but it was also Johnson's 50th career win in four seasons. Only three other coaches in the history of Division I football won 50 or more games in four seasons -- Walter Camp (1888-1891, 54-2 at Yale), George Woodruff (1892-1895, 53-4 at Penn) and Bob Pruett (1996-99, 50-4 at Marshall). Johnson took over a Georgia Southern program in 1997 that was 4-7 the previous year and orchestrated a turnaround that ranked among the NCAA's best, directing the Eagles to a 10-3 record. He was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year by the media and Region II Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association. In 1998, Johnson guided the Eagles to a perfect 11-0 regular season record and the school's sixth NCAA Division I-AA National Championship Game appearance before finishing with a 14-1 mark. He directed a high-powered offensive unit that tied or broke 100 records during the campaign, again earned the league's top coaching honor and received The Sports Network's Eddie Robinson Award -- symbolic of the division's national Coach of the Year selection. In 1999, Johnson brought Georgia Southern its fifth national title, and the Eagles finished 13-2 while breaking 197 records. For his efforts, Johnson was honored as the 1999 AFCA and Chevrolet I-AA National Coach of the Year. Johnson duplicated the feat in the 2000 season as the Eagles repeated as national champions, again finishing 13-2, and Johnson captured the AFCA I-AA Coach of the Year award once more. In five seasons at Georgia Southern, Johnson's squads broke or tied 379 individual and team school, conference, playoff or stadium records, ranked in the top 10 in 21 statistical categories and produced 31 All-Americans. The Eagles won an NCAA I-AA-record 39 consecutive games at home. Meanwhile, their 52 wins over those four seasons were the most in all of Division I.

COOK Quarterbacks/B-Backs 1st Season at Georgia Tech Ithaca (1998) @CoachBryanCook

Bryan Cook, co-offensive coordinator at Cal Poly the past four seasons and an assistant at Georgia Tech in the early 2000s, returns to Atlanta in 2013 to serve as quarterbacks and B-backs coach for the Yellow Jackets. Cook replaced Brian Bohannon, who was named the first head coach at Kennesaw State. Cal Poly, which runs an offense very similar to Georgia Tech’s spread option, finished 9-3 last season and advanced to the second round of the NCAA FCS playoffs. The Mustangs, who were 7-1 in their first year in the Big Sky Conference, compiled a record of 26-19 in Cook’s four seasons. Under Cook, who also coached the Cal Poly quarterbacks and fullbacks, the Mustangs ranked third nationally last season in FCS rushing offense (324.2 yards per game), seventh in scoring offense (36.7 ppg) and first in pass efficiency (175.7). “We are excited to have Bryan join our staff,” head coach Paul Johnson said. “He is very familiar with the offense and the position groups he will be coaching. He’s young and energetic, and I think an ideal fit for what we need.” Prior to joining the Cal Poly staff in 2009, Cook served four years as head coach at West Point Prep in Monmouth, N.J., where he compiled a 28-22-1 record. His 2008 team finished 7-3 and the 2006 squad went 8-2. He was the defensive coordinator at West Point Prep in 2004 before being

>>> 2012 REVIEW

Andy McCollum, who has been an assistant or head coach in college football for 31 years, enters his fourth season at Georgia Tech as recruiting coordinator and a coach on the defensive side of the ball. A native of Marietta (Ga.), McCollum, who supervises Tech’s recruiting efforts, moved to coaching linebackers mid-way through the 2012 season after coaching the defensive line his first 2.5 years on the Flats. Last season, McCollum’s defensive line helped the Yellow Jackets improve statistically in rushing defense, scoring defense and sacks. Under McCollum’s guidance, starters Izaan Cross and T.J. Barnes enjoyed outstanding senior seasons. Cross was invited to play in the East-West Shrine Game and Barnes was selected to participate in the NFL Combine. After Game 6, McCollum moved to coaching inside linebackers, where he saw Jabari Hunt-Days earn first team Freshmen All-American honors and Quayshawn Nealy earn ACC Linebacker of the Week honors. In his first season at Georgia Tech, McCollum helped to install the 3-4 defense. Faced with the task of players learning a completely new system, McCollum helped mold the defensive line into a solid front. McCollum came to the Flats after serving three seasons (2007-09) as linebackers coach at NC State, where he was a part of Wolfpack head coach Tom O’Brien’s initial coaching staff. NC State participated in the 2008 Papajohns.com Bowl. McCollum coached three Wolfpack linebackers who were drafted and went on to play in the NFL -- Nate Irving, Terrell Manning and Audie Cole. Prior to his tenure at NC State, McCollum spent one season in the NFL as an advance scout for the Tennessee Titans in 2006. McCollum served as head coach at Middle Tennessee State for seven seasons (1999-2005), helping the Blue Raider program make the transition from a struggling I-AA squad to a successful I-A program that competed against BCS opponents 26 times during his tenure. MTSU set 84 school records with McCollum at the helm. In 2000, McCollum led the Blue Raiders to a 6-5 record, their first winning

OWENS A-Backs 6th Season at Georgia Tech Maryland (2008) @owenlamar

Lamar Owens begins his fourth season as coach of the A-Backs and his sixth season on the Georgia Tech coaching staff. Owens has developed a number of A-backs into dependable ball-carriers and receivers. Former Yellow Jacket Orwin Smith rushed for 1,839 yards under Owens, and his average of 9.3 yards per carry is the highest ever for an Atlantic Coast Conference running back with at least 1,000 career yards. Owens also coached 1,000-yard rushers Roddy Jones and Embry Peeples. Under Owens, Tech senior Robert Godhigh has developed from a walk-on into a starter and a big-play threat. Godhigh led the team last season in touchdown receptions. Last season Georgia Tech ranked fourth nationally in rushing offense -- the fifth consecutive season the Yellow Jackets have ranked in the top four nationally in rushing offense. Tech set school records for rushing yards and total offense yards while averaging a school-record 40.0 points per game in conference play. In 2011, Smith, Peeples and Jones combined for more than 1,500 rushing yards and nearly 600 receiving yards. Smith averaged 10.2 yards per carry and Tech broke an NCAA single-game record with an average of 12.1 yards per offensive play against Kansas. The A-backs played a significant role in Georgia Tech leading the ACC in rushing offense, scoring offense and total offense in 2011. In 2010, Owens’ group of young A-backs combined for 11 touchdowns -- nine via rushing and two by receiving. As a team, the Yellow Jackets led the nation in rushing for the first time in school history. Owens, who played for Paul Johnson at the U.S. Naval Academy, followed Johnson to Georgia Tech in 2008. Prior to being named a full-time assistant coach, Owens spent the previous two seasons (2008 and 2009) as a staff assistant. He served in the role of Offensive Quality Control Coach in 2008 and he held the position of Offensive Graduate Assistant the following year. In each of Owens’ first two seasons on the Flats, the Yellow Jackets led the ACC in total offense while ranking in the top five nationally in rushing offense. In 2009, Owens worked with the Yellow Jacket quarter-

Nesbitt also accumulated 1,701 yards through the air with 10 touchdowns while leading the Yellow Jackets to an ACC Championship Game and a BCS bowl game. Capping off a record-setting year, Nesbitt was

honored as the 2009 ACC first team quarterback. As a graduate assistant at Georgia Tech, Owens was responsible for the breakdown of opponent game film, compiling scouting reports and preparing game plans. He also coordinated defensive and special teams scout teams and had an active role in on-campus recruiting visits. A native of Savannah, Ga., Owens graduated from Benedictine Military School in 2002 before moving on to the Naval Academy. After completing his football career, Owens enrolled in the University of Maryland in the fall of 2007 and graduated in May of 2008. In 2005, Owens directed a Navy offense that averaged 34.2 points and a nation's best 319.3 yards per game on the ground as the Midshipmen went 8-4, won the CommanderIn-Chief's Trophy and won a bowl game in consecutive years (beat Colorado State, 51-30) for the first time in school history. Owens was named All-East as he rushed for 880 yards and threw for 1,229 yards, breaking four school records for total offense and passing yards per attempt and completion. Owens is married to the former Lindsey Vincent.

PELTON

>>> PLAYERS >>> STAFF >>> 2012 REVIEW

A veteran coach with 13 years of experience coaching defense on the collegiate level, Mike Pelton begins his first season at Georgia Tech as coach of the defensive line. Georgia Tech returns eight starters on defense, but two of those starters not returning – end Izaan Cross and tackle T.J. Barnes – were on the defensive line. Pelton spent the previous two seasons at Auburn, his alma mater, where he coached the Tigers’ defensive line. Pelton is reunited with Georgia Tech defensive coordinator Ted Roof, who headed the Auburn defense in the Tigers’ run to the national championship following the 2010 season. Prior to returning to his alma mater in 2011, Pelton coached defensive lines at Louisiana-Lafayette (JanuaryMarch, 2011), Vanderbilt (2010), Iowa State (2007-08), Troy (2001-06) and Valdosta State (2000). A native of Goshen, Ala., Pelton spent the 2008 and 2009 seasons at Iowa State working under Gene Chizik. Pelton's defensive lines were an area of strong improvement in his two seasons with the Cyclones. Pelton mentored a pair of second-team All-Big 12 selections at Iowa State in nose guard Ahtyba Rubin and defensive end Kurtis Taylor. Rubin went on to become a starter for the Cleveland Browns after being selected in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL draft. Prior to working under Chizik at Iowa State, Pelton spent six years under Larry Blakeney on the staff at Troy, including the final two years as co-defensive coordinator. The Troy defense was consistently among the nation's leaders in several categories. In 2002, the Trojans ranked

fourth nationally, allowing just 277 total yards per game. In 2004, the Trojans ranked 16th in total defense. Pelton worked with two of the most prolific defensive linemen in Troy history, Demarcus Ware and Osi Umenyiora. A six-year NFL veteran, Ware is a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro linebacker with Dallas. Umenyiora is a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end for the New York Giants. Prior to going to Troy, Pelton coached the defensive line at Valdosta State (Ga.) University in 2000. The Blazers posted a 10-2 record and made the NCAA Division II playoffs. As a player at Auburn, Pelton was a standout defensive tackle, earning first team All-SEC recognition in 1994. A four-year letterman from 1991-94, Pelton was a co-captain as a senior and helped the Tigers win a school-record 20 consecutive games from 1993-94. Auburn posted an 11-0 record in 1993, finishing fourth in the Associated Press poll. The Tigers went 9-1-1 the following season in 1994, finishing ninth in the AP top 25. As a senior in 1994, Pelton recorded 10.0 sacks which tied for fourth-most in a single-season in Auburn history. Pelton finished his career with 294 tackles, 18 tackles for loss and 15 sacks. Pelton was a fifth-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in the 1995 NFL Draft He graduated from Auburn in 1999 with a degree in Health & Sports Science.

Al “Buzz”

PRESTON Wide Receivers 6th Season at Georgia Tech Hawai’i (1982) @CoachBuzzPres

Al “Buzz” Preston, who has enjoyed success from Honolulu to South Bend, begins his sixth season in Atlanta as Georgia Tech’s wide receivers coach. In just five seasons on the Flats, Preston has developed three NFL wide receivers -- Demaryius Thomas (Denver Broncos), Stephen Hill (New York Jets) and Kevin Cone (Atlanta Falcons). Thomas was an NFL first-round draft pick in 2010, while Hill was chosen early in the second round in 2012. Thomas, who made remarkable strides under Preston, left Tech as one of the most prolific receivers in Georgia Tech history. In just three seasons Thomas caught 120 passes for 2,339 yards (fourth-most in Tech history) while averaging 19.5 yards per reception. Thomas had 15 career touchdown receptions and caught at least one pass in 29 consecutive games. Hill collected more than 1,200 career receiving yards to go with nine touchdown receptions. As a junior in 2011, he led the nation in yards per reception (29.3). Hill teamed with Tyler Melton in 2011 to give Tech a solid duo at wide receiver. With Hill’s early departure to the NFL, Preston faced an interesting situation entering the 2012 season -- he had no receivers with a career reception. Under Preston’s guidance, however, two sophomores and a true freshman combined for 563 yards receiving and two touchdowns.

COACHING STAFF

The wide receivers played a large role in Georgia Tech breaking the school record for total offense yards in a season. Since Preston’s arrival, Tech has led the ACC in total offense three times (2008, 2009 and 2011). Preston came to Tech after serving one season at New Mexico, where he helped lead the Lobos to their first bowl victory in more than 45 years. As New Mexico’s running backs coach in 2007, Preston coached Lobo junior running back Rodney Ferguson, who earned first team All-Mountain West Conference honors for the second straight year after rushing for 1,177 yards and 13 touchdowns. Preston has 33 seasons of collegiate coaching experience, including two stints at Stanford (1999-2001, 2006). During his first three-year run with the Cardinal, Preston was part of two bowl teams that were also two of the best squads in Stanford history. He helped coach the Cardinal to the 1999 Pac-10 title on its way to the 2000 Rose Bowl. In 2001, Stanford put together a 9-3 record and was ranked among the top 10 teams in the nation during the year before playing in the Seattle Bowl against Georgia Tech. Following his three seasons at Stanford, Preston went with coach Tyrone Willingham to Notre Dame for three more seasons (2002-04) to coach the running backs and serve as special teams coordinator. He helped lead the Irish to two bowl games with appearances in the Gator Bowl in 2002 and the Insight Bowl following the 2003 regular season. Under Preston's tutelage, Julius Jones rushed for 1,268 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior at Notre Dame in 2003. Jones also had 1,568 all-purpose yards and a schoolrecord three 200-yard rushing games in '03 en route to honorable mention All-America honors. Jones went on to be selected in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys. In 2002, Irish running back Ryan Grant eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark as well. Before coming to Stanford for the first time, Preston was

the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator/QB coach at UNLV in 1998. Prior to that, he coached running backs at Washington State from 1994-97. During his fouryear term at Washington State, Preston was part of a coaching staff that guided the Cougars to the Pac-10 Conference championship in 1997 and its first Rose Bowl appearance in 67 years. The Cougar offense broke the Pac-10 record for most total yards in a single season. One of Preston's pupils, Mike Black, gained 1,157 yards rushing and was named All-Pac 10. The Cougars finished 10-2 overall and were ranked ninth in the nation. Preston also coached at his alma mater, Hawai'i, from 1987-93, when he served on the same coaching staff with Paul Johnson. He had several roles during his tenure with the Rainbows, including coaching the offensive special teams, receivers and defensive backs, while also serving as the strength and conditioning liaison. Preston's sevenyear stay at Hawai'i was highlighted by the first two bowl games in school history and the first Western Athletic Conference title ever for the program. In 1989, Hawai'i participated in its first bowl game, losing to Michigan State in the Aloha Bowl. The Rainbows won the WAC championship in 1992 and went on to defeat Illinois in the Holiday Bowl. Preston's first full-time coaching job came at Southern Illinois from 1984-86 when he tutored receivers and the defensive backfield. During his three seasons in Carbondale, SIU's defense improved dramatically -- from eighth to second in the conference -- while nine of his pupils received allconference recognition. He was a graduate assistant at Hawai'i in 1980 and 1981, a part-time coach at UH in 1982, and a graduate assistant at Washington in 1983. During his career, Preston has also been a guest coach for the Toronto Argonauts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles. A native of Los Angeles, Preston received a bachelor's degree in speech from Hawai'i in 1982. He was a two-year letterwinner (1978-79) with the Rainbow football team. Preston is a 1975 graduate of Banning High School in Los Angeles. Preston and his wife, Audrey, have three children: Amber, Evan and Quinn.

Ted Roof returned to his alma mater in January to begin his second stint as the Yellow Jackets’ defensive coordinator. Roof, one of the most-respected defensive minds in college football, has strong ties to Georgia Tech. He was a four-year letterwinner as a linebacker under head coach Bill Curry from 1982-85. As a senior, Roof was co-captain and a first team All-ACC selection on a team that finished 9-2-1 and defeated Michigan State in the All-American Bowl. He was named All-American and first team AllACC. Roof remains one of the most prolific tacklers in Yellow Jackets history with 417 career tackles. He made 25 tackles in one game against Tennessee in 1985. Roof was enshrined into the Georgia Tech Athletics Hall of Fame in 1998. Roof returned to Georgia Tech in 1998 to serve as linebackers coach under head coach George O’Leary. He was promoted to defensive coordinator in 1999 and held that position for three years. The Yellow Jackets shared an ACC title in ’98 and played in a bowl game all four years during Roof’s tenure. A native of Lawrenceville (Ga.), Roof attended Central Gwinnett High School. Roof returned to Georgia Tech after serving the 2012 season as defensive coordinator at Penn State, where he worked under another former Yellow Jacket assistant coach, Bill O’Brien. The Nittany Lions exceeded all expectations by posting an 8-4 record. Roof’s defense ranked second in the Big Ten Conference in scoring defense (19.1 ppg), first in sacks

Roof will inherit a Georgia Tech defense that returns eight starters from a unit that struggled early in 2012 before making great strides the second half of the season. The Yellow Jackets closed the season by shutting out Florida State in the second half of the ACC Championship game and holding Southern California to just seven points in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Roof and wife, Pam Ash-Roof, have twin boys, Terrence and Michael.

Prior to working at Penn State, Roof was the defensive coordinator at Auburn for three years, including the Tigers’ BCS national championship season in 2010. In 2010 at Auburn, Roof’s defense ranked ninth nationally in rushing defense and 16th in tackles for loss. In the BCS Championship game, the Tigers (14-0) held Oregon to 19 points – 28 points below the Ducks’ season average. Prior to coaching at Auburn, Roof spent the 2008 season as defensive coordinator at Minnesota. In just one season under Roof, the Gophers made significant improvements on defense, allowing 160 fewer passing yards and 135 fewer total yards per game compared to the previous season. Minnesota improved from 1-11 to 7-6 in 2008, capped by an appearance in the Insight Bowl. From 2004 to 2007, Roof served as head coach at Duke after working as the Blue Devils’ defensive coordinator in 2002 and 2003. He was promoted to interim head coach midway through the 2003 season after head coach Carl Franks was fired.

SEWAK Offensive Line 6th Season at Georgia Tech Virginia (1981) @coachmikesewak

Mike Sewak, who has coached on the college level for 29 years including four years as head coach at Georgia Southern, enters his sixth year at Georgia Tech as coach of the offensive line. Sewak, in his first four seasons at Tech, worked primarily with the guards and centers. He begins his second season coaching the entire offensive line. Since Sewak arrived at Tech in 2008, six Yellow Jacket offensive linemen have earned first-team All-ACC honors: Andrew Gardner in 2008, Sean Bedford and Cord Howard in 2009, Bedford in 2010 and Omoregie Uzzi in 2011 and 2012. Uzzi earned All-American honors in 2012 and 2013. Bedford, who came to Georgia Tech as a walk-on defensive lineman, blossomed under Sewak into a two-time first team All-ACC performer. Over the last five years, the offensive line has helped pave the way for remarkable numbers put up by the Yellow Jackets. In each of the last five years, Tech has ranked in the top four nationally in rushing offense. Over the last five years combined, the Yellow Jackets have rushed for more than 20,000 yards -- more than any team in college football. Tech led the ACC in total offense in 2008, 2009 and 2011. In 2009, the Jackets ranked second nationally in rushing offense. In 2010, Tech ranked first nationally in rushing for the first time in school history. In 2011, the Yellow Jackets ranked second in the nation. Sewak, Johnson’s offensive coordinator at Georgia Southern from 1997 to 2001, replaced Johnson as head coach of the Eagles in 2002. He produced a record of 35-14 as Georgia Southern’s head coach and led the Eagles to three NCAA Division I-AA playoffs appearances and two Southern Conference championships. He was named the 2004 Southern Conference Coach of the Year. In his first season as head coach in 2002, Sewak led Georgia Southern to the I-AA semifinals and within a lastsecond missed field goal of the national championship game. The Eagles finished the season with an 11-3 record, won the school’s sixth consecutive league title and made their fifth straight national semifinals appearance. In addition, Sewak’s offense led the nation in rushing, averaging 386.2 yards per game. Georgia Southern followed with an uncharacteristic 7-4 mark in 2003, a season which saw Sewak valiantly sidestep adversity and numerous key injuries to guide GSU to victories in six of its last eight games and earn his second straight rushing title as a head coach with a 335.6 yards per game average. Sewak put GSU back on track in 2004. Georgia Southern rolled through the regular season with an offensive juggernaut, averaging 47 points per game and winning eight games in a row between losses to I-A Georgia and Southern Conference co-champion Furman, the No. 2 ranked team in I-AA. While young on both sides of the ball in 2005, Georgia Southern led I-AA in rushing again. After a 1-2 start, the Eagles won seven of their last eight games to clinch an at-large playoff bid. The only loss during that stretch was to Appalachian State, the Southern Conference champion and the No. 2 seed in the I-AA playoffs. Sewak also led the Eagles to a win over Furman when the Paladins were ranked No. 1 in the country. As offensive coordinator under Johnson at Georgia Southern from 1997 to 2001, Sewak's offensive unit consistently ranked as one of the nation's best at the NCAA Division I-AA level during the five-year span. After finishing second in rushing offense, total offense and scoring offense in 1998, the Eagles improved to a first-place national standing in all three categories in 1999 -- averaging 419.0 rushing yards, 551.7 total yards and 50.0 points per game. In all, as Georgia Southern's offensive coordinator from 1997 to 2001, the Eagles rolled to a 62-10 mark, scored 2,855 points (39.7 ppg), picked up 25,941 rushing yards

104

(360.3 ypg), 7,816 passing yards (108.6 ypg) and 33,757 total yards (468.8 ypg). Sewak also played a key role in helping lead Georgia Southern to five straight Southern Conference championships and NCAA Division I-AA playoff appearances, three national championship games and two national titles in 1999 and 2000. In addition, three Georgia Southern offensive linemen earned All-America honors under his direct guidance from 1997 to 2001. Guard Mark Williams, who also was the recipient of back-to-back Southern Conference Jacob's Blocking Trophies in '97 and '98, tackle Rich McGrath and center Matt Winslette all earned national honors under Sewak's leadership. During his time at Georgia Southern, Sewak took an active role in the community, serving as a member of the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) in the Bulloch County (Ga.) School District. He kept ties with the Special Olympics program, serving as a volunteer in various capacities. He also instilled a community relations leadership role for his players who spent many lunch and reading sessions with children at Statesboro's Mill Creek Elementary School and donated their time to the March of Dimes Walk America and

"Operation Cleanup”. Sewak was appointed as the honorary chairperson of the Keep Bulloch Beautiful campaign in February, 2002, and was selected to a similar capacity for the 2003 Bulloch County's Walk America in January. Prior to his second stint at Georgia Southern, Sewak helped turn around a struggling program at Ohio University as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach under current Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe in 1995 and 1996. The Bobcats, after going 0-11 prior to Sewak’s arrival, went 2-8-1 in ’95 before posting a 6-6 record in 1996 – the school’s best mark since 1982. Sewak directed an offensive unit which ranked first in the Mid-America Conference in rushing with a 274.0 per game average. Prior to Ohio, Sewak spent eight years as an assistant coach at Hawai’i, where he coached the Warriors’ offensive line for seven seasons and the wide receivers for one. During his tenure in Honolulu, Hawai’i won the 1992 Western Athletic Conference championship, broke more than 150 offensive records, and finished among the nation's offensive leaders each year, averaging 31.7 points and 418 yards per game. Sewak’s first stint at Georgia Southern came as an assistant coach with the Eagles in 1985 and 1986 when he worked under coach Erk Russell. Sewak coached the running backs and the defensive backs on national championship teams in 1985 and 1986, respectively. The Eagles captured their first two NCAA Division I-AA titles those seasons, recording consecutive 13-2 records. Sewak’s first association with Georgia Tech came in 1984 when he served as a graduate assistant tight ends coach under head coach Bill Curry. A native of Johnstown, Pa., Sewak began his career in 1982 at Hobart (N.Y.) College where he served as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. A three-year letterman as an offensive lineman at Virginia, Sewak earned a degree in psychology from UVa in 1981. He was invited to tryouts with the Baltimore Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers after the completion of his collegiate playing eligibility. Sewak added a masters degree in the spring of 2008 from Georgia Southern. He and his wife, the former Robin Farmery of Marietta, Ga., are the parents of three children -- Michael Robert, Olivia and Nicholas.

Joe Speed begins his fourth season at Georgia Tech and his first coaching the Yellow Jacket defensive backs. The previous three seasons, Speed coached inside linebackers. Midway through the 2012 season, he moved over to coach the outside linebackers. In his first two seasons in Atlanta, Speed helped to install the 3-4 defense. Under Speed’s guidance, inside linebacker Quayshawn Nealy has developed into one of the top ILB’s in the ACC. Last season, redshirt freshman Jabari Hunt-Days started from Day One and emerged as one of the top defensive rookies in the nation. Former Yellow Jacket inside linebacker Julian Burnett emerged as one of the most prolific tacklers in recent Tech history. In 2011, Burnett had a team-high 120 tackles -- 42 more tackles than any player on the team. Burnett also had 9.5 tackles for loss and he forced and recovered fumbles as a junior in 2011. The previous season, two of Speed’s inside linebackers -- Burnett and senior Brad Jefferson -- ranked one-two on the team with a combined 173 tackles. Under Speed, Burnett went from a back-up in September to leading the team with 89 tackles. Speed came to Georgia Tech from the U.S. Naval Academy, his alma mater, where he worked six seasons under head coach Paul Johnson. In his final four seasons at Navy, Speed coached the Midshipmen defensive backs and also served as head coach of the junior varsity team. Speed was part of a staff that brought the Midshipmen back into the national spotlight with a 61-29 record over his last seven years. In 2009 Navy won 10 games (10-4) and defeated Missouri in the Texas Bowl. The Midshipmen defeated Army and Air Force to capture the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy

and the Navy defense ranked 18th nationally in scoring defense, allowing less than 20 points per game. In 2008, Speed helped first-year head coach Ken Niumatalolo to one of the most successful seasons for a firstyear head coach in school history. The Mids posted an 8-5 record in 2008, which is the best mark for a first-year head coach at Navy since 1934. The eight wins qualified the Midshipmen for the EagleBank Bowl. Navy earned a 24-17 victory over 16th-ranked Wake Forest, which was Navy’s first win over a team ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 since 1985, as well as Navy’s victory the previous week over Rutgers. It was the first time since 1981 that Navy beat teams currently in the BCS in back-to-back weeks. Navy also defeated a program-record four bowl teams. The 2007 season -- Johnson’s final campaign in Annapolis -- was a memorable one as well as the Midshipmen posted an 8-5 record, won a school-record fifth-consecutive Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy, appeared in a school-record fifth-straight bowl game, and defeated Notre Dame for the first time since 1963. Safety Ketric Buffin became the first player in school history to intercept a pass in each of the first four games of the season. In 2006 one of Speed’s pupils, Keenan Little, became the first player in Navy history to score a defensive touchdown in both Service Academy games in the same year as Navy once again won the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy and participated in a bowl game. Speed returned to the Naval Academy after a two-year hiatus at the Naval Academy Prep School in Newport, R.I., where he served as the Director of Athletics for two seasons and as the head football coach for one year. Before going to the prep school, Speed had a successful military tour at the United States Naval Academy as a Captain in the United States Marine Corps. In his first stint at Navy, Speed served as the Executive Administrator and Military Liaison Officer for the football team, while serving to recruit future Marine Officers, as well. Speed's military duties involved the supervision of various administrative, logistical, and professional matters pertaining to the football team and the Naval Academy Athletic Association. On the field, Speed served as the assistant linebackers coach and head junior varsity coach. He coached four seasons at Navy and in 2003, helped guide the football team to an impressive 8-5 record, which included capturing the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy and an appearance in the

Dave

WALKOSKY Special Teams Coordinator 2nd Season at Georgia Tech Toledo (1992)

Dave Walkosky, who has previously worked as a head coach and assistant coach on the collegiate level, and more recently as an assistant in the Canadian Football League, enters his second season as Georgia Tech’s special teams coach. Walkosky is the first special teams-only coach in Paul Johnson’s tenure as the Yellow Jacket head coach. In Walkosky’s first season on the Flats, the Yellow Jackets made great strides in special teams despite mid-season injuries to the starting punter and kicker. For much of the 2012 season, Tech used a non-scholarship kicker and a true freshman punter. Tech ranked 16th nationally in punt returns (12.6 yards per return) after ranking 61st the previous season. The Jackets ranked 25th nationally in kick returns after ranking 108th in 2011. Tech also ranked 14th nationally in punt return defense. Prior to the 2012 season, Georgia Tech had not returned a kickoff for a touchdown since 1998, yet the Yellow Jackets returned two kicks for scores -- both by sophomore Jamal Golden -- in 2012. Golden finished the season ranked third in the ACC in both kickoff and punt return average, and he was the only player in the nation to rank in the top 10 of both categories nationally. Three Yellow Jacket kickers combined to make 11-of-18 field goal attempts. On kickoffs, David Scully had 21 touchbacks. The previous season, Tech kickers had just eight touchbacks. Midway through the 2012 season, Walkosky also coached the Yellow Jacket defensive line and contributed to Tech’s defense making significant improvements the final half of the season. Over the final eight games of the season, Tech averaged a sack every 12 pass attempts. The defense held Florida State scoreless in the second half of the ACC Championship Game, then limited USC to seven points total

on the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Walkosky came to the Flats after serving one season (2011) as linebackers coach for the Calgary Stampeders. After helping lead the Stampeders to an 11-7 record, he was promoted in the off-season to defensive coordinator. Prior to working in the CFL, Walkosky spent 19 years on the college level as a Division II head coach and Division I defensive coordinator and assistant coach. From 2008-10, Walkosky served as head coach of Division II Tiffin University in Ohio. Among the players Walkosky recruited to Tiffin was Chris Ivory, who now plays running back in the NFL for the New Orleans Saints. Before his three-year stint as Tiffin’s head coach, Walkosky spent one season (2007) as special teams coordinator and cornerbacks coach at Washington State. Walkosky was an assistant coach at Toledo from 19992006, working with the linebackers, defensive backs and special teams. During his eight seasons at Toledo, the Rockets produced eight winning seasons, appeared in four bowl games, won two Mid-American Conference championships and six MAC West Division titles. In 2006, Toledo’s defense led the MAC in both scoring defense and total defense, and Walkosky’s defensive secondary intercepted 11 passes, three of which were returned for touchdowns. While at Toledo, seven of his 15 special teams units were ranked in the top 15 nationally. The Rockets blocked 24 kicks in his eight seasons. In 2003, Toledo ranked third nationally in punt returns (16.1) and fifth in net punting (42.3). Walkosky also enjoyed outstanding recruiting success while at Toledo. During his eight seasons with the Rockets, he recruited eight team captains. Walkosky recruited and coached Lance Moore, who has played in the NFL since 2005, and Bruce Gradkowski, a quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals. At Toledo, Walkosky also coached Tennessee Titans punter Brett Kern and wide receiver/punt returner Andrew Hawkins. Prior to working at his alma mater, Walkosky was an assistant coach at Memphis (1992-94), Waynesburg College (1995-96) and Tennessee-Martin (1997-98). Walkosky wore a number of hats at Waynesburg. In addition to working as assistant football coach, he served as the head baseball coach and sports information director. Walkosky began his playing career as a walk-on at Toledo, but quickly earned a scholarship in his first season with the Rockets and ultimately earned four varsity letters.

As a junior, he emerged with the starting job at safety and, as a senior in 1990, Walkosky was the second-leading tackler on a team that was the MAC co-champion. A native of Steubenville, Ohio, Walkosky earned his bachelor’s degree in education from Toledo. He holds a Master’s degree in athletic administration from Memphis. Walkosky and wife, the former Dr. Wendy Batchelor, have four sons: Paulo, Nicolo, Matteo and Giano.

Since assuming the role as Georgia Tech’s 11th president in 2009, Dr. G. P. “Bud” Peterson has engaged the Georgia Tech community in developing and implementing a 25-year strategic plan. He has realigned Tech’s administrative units for greater effectiveness, championed efforts to strengthen the Institute’s leadership in innovation, expanded strategic partnerships, and worked to maximize Tech’s impact in the state, region, nation, and the world. Launched in conjunction with Tech’s strategic plan, “Designing the Future,” Campaign Georgia Tech has raised more than $1.25 billion towards its goal of $1.5 billion. This generosity of Tech’s many supporters will help the Institute realize its goals outlined in the strategic plan, add endowed chairs and professorships, scholarships and fellowships, and both renovate existing and build new facilities. Georgia Tech continues to benefit from the generous philanthropic support and its many partnerships. In the past four years, renovations and new facilities on campus include the McCamish Pavilion, the Ken Byers Tennis Complex, the John and Mary Brock Football Practice Facility, the Zelnak Basketball Practice Facility, the Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons, and the Carbon Neutral Energy Solutions Lab. Now under construction is the Engineered Biosystems Building, which will extend Tech’s vision for interdisciplinary research, addressing many of today’s grand

challenges in biomedical science and human health. Under Peterson’s leadership Georgia Tech is taking a leading role in creating an “Innovation Zone” in Midtown Atlanta that has attracted companies such as Panasonic, Penguin Computing and AT&T Mobility’s Foundry. Technology Square is a high-energy hub, creating an exciting environment for innovation to flourish. Tech’s research strategy focuses on creating transformative opportunities, strengthening collaboration, and maximizing economic and societal impact.

BOBINSKI Director of Athletics 1st Year at Georgia Tech Notre Dame (1979) @GaTechAD

Mike Bobinski, who has successfully directed athletic departments at Akron and Xavier for a combined 20 years and has worked as a collegiate athletics administrator for 30 years, embarks on his first year as director of athletics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Bobinski will oversee an athletic department that includes 17 NCAA Division I varsity sports and is rich with athletic tradition and success. Just the eighth Georgia Tech director of athletics over the past 110 years, Bobinski joins the likes of John Heisman, William Alexander, Bobby Dodd and Homer Rice who have served in the role previously. Bobinski, whose tenure officially began April 1, 2013, served as chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee for the 2012-13 season. That successful role concluded with the 2013 Final Four, which coincidentally was held in Atlanta. Bobinski came to Georgia Tech after serving 12 years as director of athletics at Cincinnati’s Xavier University, where he also served as associate vice president. He was hired as the Musketeers’ director of athletics in 1998 and remained in the role until 2004, when he was named associate vice president for development and oversaw all of the

university’s fundraising efforts, including major gifts, grant services and annual and planned giving. He returned as athletic director in 2006. “We are very pleased to welcome Mike Bobinski to Georgia Tech as our new director of athletics,” Georgia Tech president Dr. G.P. “Bud” Peterson said upon his hiring. “Mike’s proven record of success and his diverse background in sports, finance and development, as well as his unwavering commitment to student-athletes, make him the ideal person to lead our athletic program.” At Xavier, Bobinski headed an athletic program that strived to excel in the classroom as well as on the playing fields and courts. In 2012, Xavier ranked 11th nationally in Division I Graduation Success Rates at 97 percent. In June of 2012, the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics named Bobinski the Under Armour Division I Northeast Athletic Director of the Year. During his tenure, nine of Xavier’s teams and numerous individuals competed in NCAA championship competitions. That includes men’s basketball, which reached at least the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 in four of the last six years. In the same time span, 25 Xavier teams captured Atlantic 10 Conference championships. In men's basketball, Xavier averaged 25 wins over Bobinski's 12 years, and earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament 10 times. The Musketeers advanced to the Elite Eight in 2004 and 2008. In addition, men's basket¬ball extended its streak to 88 straight seniors that graduated. Women's basketball made runs to the NCAA Elite Eight in 2001 and again in 2010 and in 2011 achieved its highest national ranking in program history at No. 4. In 2009, Bobinski hired Chris Mack as men's basketball head coach. He also hired Thad Matta as head men's basketball coach in 2001 and Sean Miller as Xavier's first associate head coach. Matta is now head coach at Ohio State and Miller has since taken over as head coach at Arizona. Bobinski also hired former women's basketball coach Kevin McGuff, who spent nine years at Xavier and is now head coach at Ohio State. He also oversaw the opening of The Cintas Center and other significant facility projects, including upgrades to soccer and baseball venues and the development of a golf practice facility. Prior to joining Xavier, Bobinski served as the University of Akron’s athletic director from 1994 to 1998. From 1989 to 1994, he was the associate director of athletics at the U.S. Naval Academy. Prior to that, Bobinski served as the associate and assistant business manager at the University of Notre Dame from 1984 to 1989. As a licensed certified public accountant, he first went into accounting with Deloitte, Haskins and Sell and Arthur Young & Company from 1979-82. He also worked for the Walt Disney Company in Orlando from 1982-84 before moving into college athletics at UND in 1984. Bobinski was hired at Georgia Tech following a threemonth, nationwide search. A seven-member committee led by Stephen P. Zelnak Jr. advised Peterson and identified candidates. Bobinski took over for Dan Radakovich, who resigned in November (2012). A native of Yaphank on Long Island, N.Y., Bobinski received his bachelor of business administration from Notre Dame in 1979, graduating magna cum laude, while playing four years for the Fighting Irish baseball team. Bobinski has two children, Melissa, a 2009 Xavier graduate, and Brian, a 2012 Ohio State graduate.

HONORING BURNETT Georgia Tech paid tribute to former linebacker Julian Burnett in 2012 by rotating Burnett’s No. 40 jersey among active players each game. Burnett was a star linebacker for the Jackets, a leader on and off the field, before suffering a career-ending injury in 2011.

ALL-CONFERENCE HONOREES Senior guard Omoregie Uzzi was named first team AllACC by both the media that cover the ACC and the league’s 12 head coaches. Uzzi is a three-time All-ACC performer (media). The Lithonia (Ga.) product was a first-team selection in 2011 and a second-team selection as a sophomore in 2010. Uzzi is the first Jacket to earn first-team honors in consecutive years since center Sean Bedford in 2009 and 2010. Four Jackets were named honorable mention All-ACC (media): junior linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu, junior center Jay Finch, junior offensive lineman Will Jackson and senior running back Orwin Smith. Smith, Attaochu and Finch joined sophomore kick returner Jamal Golden and senior defensive tackle T.J. Barnes on the coaches’ honorable mention team. This marked the first season the coaches selected an All-ACC team.

TECH EARNS THIRD ACC TITLE GAME BERTH Georgia Tech won its third ACC Coastal Division title, and the second in Paul Johnson’s five seasons on the Flats. The Yellow Jackets earned the right to battle Florida State in the 2012 Dr Pepper ACC Championship Game. At 5-3 in the division, Tech finished tied atop the division with Miami and North Carolina. But the decision by Miami to self-impose a postseason ban and UNC’s probation made them both ineligible for title consideration. The Jackets also claimed Coastal Division crowns in 2006 and 2009. Since divisional play began in 2005, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech remain the only two teams to have claimed the Coastal, but this marks the first time the winner of the Tech/Tech regular season game didn’t win the division.
